The Adelaide Brevoort Hutton Residence
The residence of Adelaide Brevoort Hutton (born Adelaide Brevoort Close), Marjorie Merriweather Post's eldest daughter from her first marriage to Edward Bennett Close, built c. 1928 next to her mother's 'Hillwood' mansion in Brookville. By the time of Adelaide's marriage in 1927 to Thomas Wells Durant she had taken E.F. Hutton's last name, her step father. Today the home is part of LIU's C.W. Post campus and functions as the admissions office. Click HERE for more on 'Hillwood'. Click HERE to see the residence on google earth and HERE on bing.
